Hi, my name is BIll (Onemagicman) and I live in San Diego, CA.  I have been a certified KCBS & CA. judge over the years and currently am not active due to the lack of contest no longer available in Souther CA.  The money has realy dried up!


I recently retired from NAPA Auto Parts.   I love, love smoked food.


I purchased an MBS40 from Sam's Club last year and am now producing my own product at home.  I had a charcoal Brinkman years ago and what a difference in ease of use. 


While I do use the smoker too often as there is only two of at home now a days I have done ribs, pork butt and chicken a few times. I have tried brisket twice and failed so miserbly, one of them I had to through it out. 


Like in most contests they can be won or lost on a good brisket, I will master it and be in "smoker heaven." 


With spring here it is time to take the cover off and roll into the back yard and try again.


I enjoy this forum very much.

If you can't locate the answer just ask folks here are willing to share there knowledge. You might take a look at the 5 day e-course on smoking its chuck full of great info. If my memory serves me correctly there is info on brisket where you might pick up a few pointers. Smoking  5-Day e-Course
